Great For The Price

I was a little skeptical buying this software, mainly because of the price, 50 bucks is considered very cheap in any video compositing standard. so i bought the app, and after a few days of using it i can defintley say that it is money well spent, it is like a miniature version of after effects but it has everything you need, motion tracking, good chroma keying, animation, title creation, adding effects in 2D & 3D space, And LOADS more. The price for this app just blows every other compositing software out of the water, im not saying its better then after effects, but it is very good for the small price. It works great with Final Cut Pro X and runs smooth as butter on my Macbook Pro 13” Retina with 8GB of ram, i am very happy with this purchase and would recomend it to any video editor working with FCPX or just anyone who wants to add awesome effects and boost the quality of their video’s up. Thanks.
